Hi everyone. My name is Shari Elder. I’m thrilled to be here and share my debut novella, Shifter Trials, a paranormal romance published by Evernight Publishing. In this modern version of the Atalanta myth,Â Talia, the alpha of the united wolf-eagle clans, must marry any man who beats her in the Trials.
The contest is a 20 mile grueling marathon, and she trains obsessively to ensure she wins. Her newest trainer, Hayden, a vampire, loves her, and is hell-bent on winning her heart.
In this teaser I want to share with you today, Hayden is training Talia for the first time. To push her, he tells her that if he wins a practice race, sheâ€™ll owe him a kiss. He wins, so lets she what happens.
â€œEyes glued to my butt, eh?â€
She wanted to slap him, but the grin he flashed had her melting into a pile of goo.
â€œWell, you won,â€ she whispered, suddenly shy, a unique sensation for an alpha of two predatory clans.
â€œYeah, I did.â€ He padded over to her, breathing more rapidly than normal, the only evidence of his physical exertion. With a single calloused finger, he gently traced the angle of her cheekbone, the jut of her jaw, and swirled circles around the pulse pounding in her throat. Sparks exploded everyplace he touched.
â€œIâ€™ll claim the prize in my own way, in my own time.â€
I’ve got wolf shifters, eagle shifters, rat shifters and vampires in this book.Â What’s your favorite shifter?
Thanks for dropping by.
